SummaryThese IM missionaries are in need of your support to close the gap in their funding: Ingrid Roldán-Román, Ketly and Vital Pierre, Richardo Mayol Bracero, Mercy González Barnes, Madeline Flores-López, Deliris Carrión-Joseph and Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti.
DescriptionHurricanes Irma and Maria together delivered a devastating one-two punch to the people of Puerto Rico. Since the storms made landfall on September 20, 2017, they have wreaked havoc on the island, causing a level of widespread destruction and disorganization paralleled by few storms in American history. Historically, Puerto Rico has played a crucial role in the mission that God accomplishes through IM, providing global servants with vital prayer and significant financial support. However, in the face of such widespread and costly devastation, the ability of the Puerto Rican churches to financially support IM and its global servants has dropped dramatically. Our seven global servant families from Puerto Rico, Ingrid Roldán-Román, Ketly and Vital Pierre, Richardo Mayol Bracero, Mercy González Barnes, Madeline Flores-López, Deliris Carrión-Joseph and Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti, are in great need of additional financial support. You can enable their vital ministries in the name of Jesus Christ to continue, despite the impact of the storms. With your special gift to support global servants from Puerto Rico, you can come alongside both the missionaries and their supporters, to stand in the funding gap created by the hurricanes. IM is appealing to our long-time friends to make an additional gift above and beyond what you so generously do already, to help close the gap of $20,000 per global servant family to help fill the gap.
Prayer RequestsPlease pray that special funding will enable these vital ministries in the name of Jesus Christ to continue, despite the impact of the storms. With your special gift to support global servants from Puerto Rico, you can come alongside both the missionaries and their regular supporters to help close the funding gap created by the hurricanes. Please pray and give in support of IM's Puerto Rican global servants: Ingrid Roldán-Román Ketly Pierre Ricardo Mayol Bracero Mercy González Barnes Madeline Flores-López Deliris Carrión-Joseph Carlos Bonilla & Mayra Giovanetti
